Anticlockwise definition


anticlockwise_definitionAnticlockwise (or anti-clockwise) came up as a term in a recent podcast I was listening to.  I had to rewind to hear it again.

Sees this is a legit word, but has its roots in England.

The definition of anticlockwise is the same as counterclockwise (or counter-clockwise) here in the U.S.  turning in the opposite direction from the rotation of the hands of a clock.

First known use of ANTICLOCKWISE appears to be in 1879.
